O Family Throw-back-Thursday...San Marcos Family Photography
I LOVE watching babies grow, getting to capture families time and time again, and being part of their milestones! And since I'm busily editing this family's recent shoot - their third with me - I thought I would take a moment to do a little #TBT to their two sessions with me from last year!
I first met this gorgeous mama in a photography workshop being hosted by Kelly Crispin Paulson of Wild Whim Photography. Stephanie was still pregnant with Scarlett at the time, and I was thrilled when she reached out to have me do a little mini session for her and then 3-month-old Scarlett in October. Mommy-and-me sessions are really so sweet, and such a treasure for our little ones who don't often have photos of themselves WITH mommy!
Just a couple months later, when Scarlett was almost 6 months old we did their family Holiday photos at Jack's Pond Park in San Marcos. I finally got to meet Scarlett's adorable Daddy and the three of them were such a wonderfully loving little family! So relaxed and naturally beautiful! (Oh, and I have a serious case of hair envy with this one, haha)
I shot Scarlett's 9-month photos last week (keep your eye out for that upcoming blog) and will being rounding off her first year in a couple more months! My style of photography relies on my subjects feeling comfortable in front of the camera, which means I need to earn their trust and get them comfortable with me. So the benefits to shooting a family on multiple occasions are really exponential -especially as children get to know me and start to look forward to family photoshoots instead of dreading them! They know we're going to have fun and make silly faces and play games - and that makes for the best memories and most treasured photos!
